How to manually calculate the NPK content of a media?
« on: January 22, 2024, 04:51:11 AM »
I work in a tissue culture laboratory and we have several custom made medias that I would like to know the NPK ratio for. How would I work that out? For example, one of the medias contains 7-8 different chemicals (along with sugar, agar etc).

You need to separately calculate amount of each element in each compound in the mixture and sum them up. If you know the mixture composition that should be simple.
